Michael Chekhov's work as Director

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review

Abstract

For the first time, Michael Chekhov's (St Petersburg 1891 - Los Angeles 1955) work as director and head of theatres is analysed as a continuos process in all periods of his creative activities: Moscow 1920s, Europe 1930 - 38, and the United States 1939 - 46. His artistic ideas were connected with Russian symbolism and utopianism. However, his rehearsal work with actors, creating an ensemble, and working with playwrights proved to give results in his own time, and they are still practicable.
